'You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream' for Bandwidth

Your new ice cream parlor franchise is crowded with diners enjoying Halloween treats, and everyone's on their smartphone at once. But you planned for a big turnout and set up your Wi-Fi network to provide emergency bandwidth. Thanks to this foresight, your network is able to handle this increasingly sticky crowd situation, even when a Blob-like alien overloads on sugar and runs amok. In retail, school, or enterprise settings with multiple users and connections, emergency Wi-Fi backup helps keep your freezers running.

It's that time of year again, when ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties go bump in the night! For most of us, though, it can seem like we're in a horror movie all year long – one where masked madmen, ghosts and demons come crawling out of our mobile devices to empty our bank accounts, disrupt network signals, overload systems, and spy on company data. And like the characters in a horror movie, we all too often make poor decisions when it comes to Wi-Fi. In this slideshow, Xirrus has outlined a guide to achieving a better ending with enterprise Wi-Fi and connectivity.
